Tim was born and raised in Fort Collins, Colorado. After graduating from high school, he joined the U. S. Marine Corps where he served in a special operations unit that performed waterborne raids using Zodiac rubber rafts. This unit presented a great opportunity for Tim as a member of a hostage rescue team and he received extensive training with both rifles and handguns.

After graduating from Colorado State University with a degree in Business Finance in 1997, Tim joined the Colorado State Patrol. Tim quickly became a range officer with the State Patrol and later, a Rifle Instructor. In the last two years that the State Patrol conducted a statewide competition with all uniformed members, Tim won the expert class each year. Tim has instructed a variety of skill levels and has something to offer all shooters, from the novice to the most advanced.

On a personal note, Tim is married to Erika, who can often be found assisting the instructors during Carry-On classes. Together, Tim and Erika ride motorcycles, snowmobiles, and love spending time with their spoiled bulldog, Chief. Tim is also an avid hunter, both with rifle and archery equipment.
